This is a pure website only suggestion, there is no ingame scripting required for this.
Well the idea is to use to ingame camera or screenshots, and get players involved. Most of the players have done all trucking achievements and they are always looking for some interesting work. I am sure many of us like photography and taking pics. So I came up with this suggestion.

Basically the website should have Gallery tab, there are these tabs right now:
VIKY HOME CLUBS HOUSES VEHICLES MAP CHAT FORUM LOG OFF
So I am suggesting this: VIKY HOME GALLERY CLUBS HOUSES......

Features of gallery:
-> Gallery will consist of images of the server, in thumbnail format (like the houses page but with pagination support, like 20 thumbnails per page, sorted by most recent added), on clicking any thumbnail, the whole image will be displayed with a caption on the image, it will have a cross (X) button on top right corner.
-> Anyone can see the gallery, it would be public.
-> The alt attribute of the img tag of thumbnail will have the caption too.
-> This will help the server because its the era of digital media and digital content, so getting good images of the server is a good idea.
-> Players can submit great pictures of the server with/without mods and they will also submit a caption of the image. This will be submitted from his/her panel in the website.
-> An admin can approve/reject pictures of the player.
-> On reject, the image will be deleted automatically, on approve, it will be added to gallery automatically and player will receive some ingame cash like 10K$ for every approved image automatically.
-> Images will have a fixed filesize limit and format which the player needs to take care of before submitting the image.
-> Total number of approved images submitted by a player will be counted for every player and can be displayed in the stats on website.

Here an option will be there to submit an image:

I'm all for this but why get 10k for an approved image? IMO that part is not needed because it'll then get spammed with submissions.

Putting a limit to 1 per day would be good then. That would prevent spam. We had photomania club by $nake, that didn't have any problems like spamming and all, it used to give around 200K, one event per week.

I said 10K because some motivation is required as its a lot of work, first click the pic, and the pic has to be good, and then make it size compatible by editing it, then think for a good caption, and then finally upload it on imgur or CT website (whatever the developer decides), and after that what if it gets rejected? Whole effort would go in waste. So its quite a task. It is very interesting task but reward should be there. I don't think 10K is much, its actually less.
